This journal, with its pages of Essays and its blog, where some of the essays are initially worked out, expresses the views of its author, JVR, who is also the Publishing Editor, sometimes referred to as the Editor-in-Chief. The essays are social and political commentary, although not primarily or ultimately. They may be personal or they may also be critiques of culture, of language, of art, of music, of history, of historiography, of philosophy, of religion, of media, of film, of people, of behavior, of psychology, of pedagogy, of bureaucracy, of ethnicity, of love, desire, reason, knowledge, literacy . . . what else should I include? Everything? One could not include everything, but in attempting toward everything–and the toward here is important to note–the journal achieves its perpetuation. There are also essays of merely exposing a topic without the principal motive of critique. The staff has a like opinion about the mutually inclusive and exclusive pair, objectivity and subjectivity. Is the former possible or even probable; does it at all exist? It does as an absolute–or as all absolute values exist, metaphysically and transcendently, always as a potential here in spite of our inescapable subjectivity, although purely actual in its transcendence. I do know how we receive these ideas today in our culture, so let me go on to say . . . what more can I say, could I, should I . . . to say or not to say has become my question.
